The colder weather means it’s time for holiday parties! Getting together with your friends for some delicious appetizers lots of great conversation and holiday cheer is one of my favourite parts of the season. I love the opportunity to get dressed up and put together a holiday appetizer that is easy and delicious! This recipe for 15 Minute Mexican Chicken Appetizers takes very little time and can be made ahead with just some assembly the night of the party. In my mind that is a win-win – delicious, easy, can be made ahead and guests big and little will love it!
This appetizer can be made with any leftover cooked chicken but I used a grocery store rotisserie chicken removing the cooking step all together.
15 Minute Mexican Chicken Appetizers
1 cup shredded cooked chicken
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
*1/4 cup salsa (I used medium to kick up the heat a little)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro finely chopped (reserve some for garnish)
juice of 1 lime
tortilla chips (I used red organic chips for a festive look)
*increase to 1/2 cup for a mix with more sauce
In a small bowl combine cumin, coriander, salsa, lime juice and cilantro. Mix to combine. Add chicken and toss until evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for minimum 1 hour up to 1 day. When ready to serve spoon chicken mixture on top of tortilla chip and place on platter. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
